I took the part out about KFC and McDonalds do its best to combat this genetic pre-disposition, as I thought it was a bit mean. :) I'll agree with you now that you brought it up though, too many girls with thunder thighs here.

Locally you're correct, both the supply and demand is strong for this combination. I was speaking more broadly though, based on experiences back in the US. For interracial relationships, White male/Asian female was the most common.

Do you think it has anything to do with fantasies?

I'm guessing the biggest White Male fantasy is a small, young nubile girl with a subservient nature (not saying this is, in any way, the case) with exotic features. Asian, for the average WM would be the epitome of that fantasy I would think.

The average female fantasy, could it be the (theoretically speaking) the Alpha Black male. Again, I'm going back to primordial days where the alpha male controls the heard and the females would try to procreate with the strongest to ensure their bloodlines continue? Recessive genes may play a part in this? The reverse pairings, while they do exist, are much smaller and probably have more to do with social happenstance than anything fantasy oriented. Again, I really don't have a clue.

Rarely do either sex act upon the fantasies but I think maybe these might be the two biggest and therefore have a bigger "following". I really don't know.

I'm married to an Indian (which isn't the typical Asian East-West marriage as most are Oriental/Caucasian couplings) but there were never any fantasies with Asian girls that I can remember. In fact, having been married several times before, they were as WASPish as you could get. I really don't know. Determined to break the mold? :-k

This could be an interest thread if we can keep if from descending into a mud pit.... [-o<

Having grown up in a society where white people were considered "better," I thought I'll find white women more beautiful. Colonial mentality blah, blah, blah.

I've had the opportunity to see places and meet people. Real life isn't like TV or the movies. So, I guess safe to say, I've never had the "exotic beauty because it's different from what I'm used to" fetish.

A beautiful woman is a beautiful woman, regardless of race.

According to OP and wd40 for the last 6 years of my living in Asia I should have been dating only Ukrainians. Surprisingly, all of them (including current one) were Asians (Mongoloid type) with one exception for Russian and another one for African.
Other thing, OP, if you give any shit about what all people around think about your couple, you better break up right now! There is no way you can make everybody liking you, no matter whether she is Asian or not! Looks like there is some complex of superiority in here… :D

No way I care about what every garbage guy standing round the corner thinks about me or my gf, she doesn't care either.

Yes, this is the interesting part. I am pretty agreeable with both Zzm's and Brah's explanations but I really think the Caucasian female (WF) part is much less obvious and intriguing. I am not sure about the fantasies but an alpha male dream may be a part of it. If this was only supply and demand factor then WF-L(ocal)M couples should be more common what is not the case.

What I was initially thinking of (and still think is important) was the cultural factor. I believe the local societies are much more patriarchal comparing to the modern, Western ones. This makes WM more attractive to the local females (LF) - it takes two to tango. For the WFs it is just opposite and for exactly the same reason.

My wife and I get stared at because I am caucasian and she is filipina. Most I think are trying to figure out if she is the maid or the wife!

When my 22 year old daughter came over from the UK and we went out as a family with my wife and two year old daughter some looked very confused trying to work out the relationship between all of us.

Never had anyone say anything nasty to us though. Although my wife does not dress in high heels and short skirt we probably do fit the 'older out of shape foreign guy with younger filipina' stereo type. :oops:

I have been 1/2 of a mixed race couple all my life (I’m mixed race myself ½ Caucasian ½ se Asian). My partners have been so far blonde white, south African black, Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese, American…

When I was in England and going out with blondey white chick, some guy actually came up to us while we were walking down the street, and said to my girlfriend “like should stick to like”
Who? What? How? Why? Where? When? Merde...

in my observation...not a fact just opinion. the caucasian female and asian male couple is not common because maybe generally females in westernized environment are more strong willed and opinionated. Its a bit overwhelming for an asian man.

I remember that Scandinavian (I'll keep her originb in secret) blonde girl a few years back - she didn't even look at Caucasians. They were simply out of her consideration when it came to anything sex-related. We were in a club with her and 2 other Singaporean Chinese girls. After 20 minutes in that club we saw her at the bar stand, holding her hand between legs of one nerdy Asian guy with glasses, rithmivally moving that hand and chatting with him and his another nerdy Asian friends. Then she disappeared, and after 2 hours my Singaporean Chinese female friend received sms from her with contents like "We have 3-some now, come join us - let us have 4-some". Fortunately, my friends were more towards 2-somes (btw, somebody said there is a certain reason for a guy to be called handsome :D )

And that what was really happening, I'm not lying.

So here is one vivid example of Caucasian woman prefer Asian men. In Singapore. Purely for sex though. I never saw her having boyfriends.
